Inspired by their fur babies over 20 years ago, Pat and her partner established Petopia to provide a service that was dedicated to the health and well-being of pets. After years of working in the corporate world, they felt the same guilt shared by other responsible pet guardians who also left their pets alone when they had to work or travel. They found a few pet care services but none provided the quality of care their pets were accustomed to.
Leaning in to their urge to pursue something more personally fulfilling, Pat and her partner decided to apply their knowledge, experience, and passion for animals to create a complete solution for pet parents; one that offers peace of mind from knowing that their four-legged companions are blissfully content and safe. They created Petopia to offer you and your pooches an experience that not only promotes your pet’s well-being, but also enriches the bond you share with them.
Petopia strongly believes in continual education and constant renewal of knowledge. As such, we are always learning more about animal behaviour and animal care. Here are some of Pat’s certifications and experience:
The CPCT program builds a solid foundation for pet care professionals to pursue more advanced skills.
